Use a different "spec file" for gcc. Start with "gcc -v" to find out
which spec file it is using by default. Then read "info gcc" and search
for "spec file" to learn about what the command line option "-specs="
can control. This is arcane, tedious, cumbersome, frustrating, and
prone to error. The bugs will be non-obvious. If your time is worth
anything, then it will be less expensive to spend a couple hundred euros
for a second-hand machine that remains configured with the last known
working environment, for as long as vdr must be supported.

That is such a bad idea that even those who know how to do it
will not tell you.
